Smartphones have been threatening for a few years to top laptops as the preferred way consumers engage with their digital lives. But this year it's really happening – just in time for the holidays. This sets the scene for a very digital Christmas where consumers worldwide will be hunting out presents using mobile apps and websites. To keep pace with increasingly mobile customers, enterprises need a sophisticated approach to mobile app development and testing that gives finicky users a winning digital retail experience across all stages of a customer's journey ...

Attempting to weigh the current level of DevOps maturity within your organization is one of those daunting propositions that can leave today's business and technology pros searching for meaningful answers. There are some well-established metrics that can serve as inherent measurements of overall DevOps success, including deployment frequency rates, average lead times, meant time to recovery (MTTR), and of course, any figures resulting from dedicated Application Performance Monitoring (APM). Yet, perhaps even more valuable than some of these numbers, or of greater import to practitioners for purposes of self-assessment, are metrics that help analyze precisely how ongoing DevOps adoption compares to similar efforts among peers ...

I love the Bourne movies. Apart from the action, what I find fascinating is the uncanny abilities of the protagonist – Jason Bourne; his sixth-sense. He can quickly "weigh up" his surroundings and make detailed assessments of all dangers. This acute level of awareness gives him a distinct competitive advantage. We need this ability in IT Operations, especially with performance monitoring – we need Jason Bourne's situational awareness ...

Improving end-user customer experience is one of the key objectives of an application performance management solution in a production environment. By leveraging the application performance data earlier in the development cycle, DevOps teams can ensure readiness for exceptional customer experience before deploying any application in production. Finally, harnessing the business data in application transactions and logs and correlating them with operational data can provide actionable business insights. In this blog, I will discuss five steps to DevOps success leveraging an application performance management solution in production ...

The perception that adopting DevOps is all about culture, not as much about technology, would appear rather shortsighted. No question, navigating the involved people and process issues is widely recognized as the biggest challenge in adopting DevOps models. That's an established concept that I doubt anyone familiar with this movement would attempt to dismiss. However, it's also very clear that finding the right tools and services to support this evolution is a hugely critical piece of the puzzle ...

Times are changing. With the imperative to deliver applications faster, developers are increasingly stepping outside their traditional skill-zones and leveraging new automated capabilities – allowing them to develop and test in parallel, while releasing software continuously. In essence, they're not only writing great music, but also building the instruments upon which to play it ...

DevOps must deal with zombies popping up on all sides, in the form of 500s, 404s, service timeouts, and fatal exceptions. Failing to attack these issues as soon as they crop up can generate rot throughout your business because customers have very little tolerance for a bad experience online ...

Most discussions of DevOps assume that the "dev" is being done exclusively in programming languages of recent vintage and that the "ops" are occurring exclusively on distributed or cloud platforms. There are, however, at least three compelling reasons to have a DevOps discussion that focuses on the mainframe ...

Testing has often been the low priority on the totem pole in the world of software development. That's not because it isn't important and there isn't value placed on it, but rather because it is difficult, the tools and platforms available are time-consuming to implement and it is the area that most often gets the compressed end of the schedule. Talk to large enterprises and see how many of them have outsourced much of their QA to the lowest cost offshore firm they can find ...
